Reference Section (REF)
We have a reference section in both the LUX and SOL Library. Here you can find various subject-specific dictionaries and encyclopedias. The reference works may not be checked out; they are only for use in the respective library. At LUX Library, additional reference works, which cannot be checked out, are also located on other shelves. In the Asia Library all reference works are placed in our ordinary shelves together with the books you can borrow. You recognize reference works by their red sticker on the back.
The HT Libraries subscribe to both printed journals and ejournals. The latest issues of our printed journals are available at the Asia-, LUX- and SOL Library’s journal sections. The journals that are available electronically can be found via ePublications in LUBsearch.
At the Asia and the SOL Library, some monograph and journal collections are in storage. Material in these collections can be ordered via LUBcat. Books from the SOL Library's storage can then be collected from noon onwards, the next working day. Ask the staff at the Asia Library in order to find out when you will be able to collect the books you have ordered from the Asia Library's storage.
Our collections include a number of databases with content related to the humanities, theology and social sciences, as well as some interdisciplinary material.
